12:15pm
>> now your weather forecast with saundra shaw. >> stop what you're doing and take a look at new york city. this is in the three burrows that were affected by a tornado like down burst. wind of 70-100 miles per hour toppled trees over. there was one fatality. a woman who was in her car tried to get out of the rain and the tree just crashed into her car. so, a major event in new york with the severe storm. we did see some rain with this frontal system but all the energy was well to our north. fortunately nothing like that here. but they're still recovering and cleaning up near manhattan. we're dealing with a few little clouds. all the energy is way off show and it continues to move to the east. so high pressure is going to build in behind the low pressure system that went through last night. so with the contrast and the
12:16pm
pressure, we could see the winds pick up more as the afternoon progresses. right now westerly at about 10 miles per hour. current temperatures in the upper 70's. 74 at the airport, 77 in easton. looks like we're headed for a high in baltimore in the low 80's which is above normal again. mid 60's, slight chance for lingering rain out in the mountains throughout the afternoon. other than that for us, beautiful sunny skies, 83 degrees. yesterday we were 86 degrees and very humid. today, it's a dryer 83 with those brisk northwest winds. no problems if you want to take the boat out and get a head start on the chesapeake. the waves there only be one to two feet. 78 and 58 for your normals so we're generally in that range. couple degrees above the normal high. 56 is our average low, tonight and our suburbs will be between 55 and 58 degrees. but downtown as the typical in
12:17pm
the low 60's. but mostly clear skies, great for friday night football and great for anything if you have plans outdoors. high pressure is going to build, going to hold steady throughout the weekend. another little front may get through here late sunday but going to be a dry front. with that said, we won't see any major prescription, probably no precipitation. but where it is active is in the tropics as igor is still packing winds. it's headed towards bermuda, land fall late monday night. but julia's right behind it with 85 mile-per-hour sustained winds and carl is currently hitting mexico. very active in the tropics, very quiet and gorgeous here. temperatures in the low 80's all weekend long with plenty of sun. >> thank you, sandra. espionage plus disguises and hand to hand combat equal the perfect marriage right? that's the premise of nbc's new fall series "undercovers." and their stars, boris kodjoe
12:18pm
and gugu mbatha-raw join us live from ber bank, california with more. good afternoon. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> how are you? >> doing great. first of all, you both are incredibly gorgeous people, so besides this great eye candy what can we expect when "undercovers" debuts this wednesday? >> you can expect lots of action and drama. there's romance and comedy all packaged in one. that's what makes it so fun. we play a married couple of ex-spies that decide to retire and live a normal life. as you can see this is our catering company. >> bloom catering. >> after five years we decide to go back into c.i.a., and we travel the world and encounter incredible adventures while making our marriage work. >> this is a really physical show, so what does it take to become steven bloom, first of all, boris, answer that one for me? >> well you know, a lot of training, martial arts, different languages, we get to
12:19pm
kick butt all the time. great role for an actor because we get to do so many things on a daily basis that you wouldn't get to do. plus you add the element of j.j. abrams and josh reems, two amazing creators of shows like "lost" and "alias" and it's a great concept and hopefully the audience will have a great time traveling throughout the world with us and having great adventures. >> so gugu, what are the physical challenges for you playing samantha? >> well, i mean samantha is incredibly athletic, which is great for me. i have a kind of dance background. so it's been great using my flexibility and -- yeah, i mean the challenge for samantha is that she has to do it all in high heels a lot of the time. so, you know, there's a very glamourous aesthetic to the show. it's been great fun, and as boris said we've had this training, and had a chance to
12:20pm
work with some fantastic stunt coordinators. so, it's been great. >> and how is it working together? i imagine the key part of this show is the kem try -- is the chemistry between the two of you. >> it's been great. we both grew up in europe so we had to to share. it's a demanding job so we've got to stick together. and you know, obviously the sexript is amazing, and it allows us to play these characters that are so multifast setted and it's just a great opportunity to be apart of something like that and have a great time. the audience will go on the ride with us and enjoy it as much as we do. >> ultimately -- oh, ultimately the relationship really is at the heart of it. so the fascinating thing as the characters develop is when we were in the c.i.a. we didn't talk about our past or our operations with each other. so now as we're back in the
12:21pm
agency, things start kind of slipping out about each others histories and relationships that complicates things and makes it very interesting dynamics. >> a lot of skeletons are being revealed as we go through the episodes. >> it looks like a great show. thank you so much for joining us and we look forward to seeing "undercovers." boris and gugu, thank you so much. have a great day. >> thank you so much. and i want to give a quick shout out to my wife's family in baltimore. donald parker and reggie, susan parker, hey! >> i didn't know we had a baltimore connection. that's fabulous. thank you so much. you can catch boris kodjoe and gugu mbatha-raw in the series premiere of "undercovers" 8:00 p.m. right here on wbal tv 11. all new this afternoon on the farewell season of oprah, the queen of talk closes out the premiere week with a bang. nate berkus and vera wang join. 14 years to the day since

12:23pm
fishing. >> yellow, the species may be overfished and doing harm to other sea life when caught. while red indicates the fish is definitely suffering for both those reasons. whole foods still offers them though to send a message. >> the reason we're continuing to send these species is we want to give them an opportunity to make changes to their operations. >> changes that are recommended by the blue ocean institute, the environmental group that's advising whole foods where customers are already more satisfied. >> this would definitely make me take a second thought before i bought something. >> some retailers have gone a step further and stopped offering certain seafoods because of the way they're caught. wbal tv 11 news. >> up next, your maryland lottery. >> and getting a check of your >> and getting a check of your weather fo y

have a great day. tax on everything you buy? that's in andy harris' unfair tax plan. 23% sales tax. a 23% sales tax will cut my business in half. would be devastating. andy harris' 23% sales tax absolutely makes no sense. 23% sales tax would really make things unaffordable.
